METCON: Aka Metabolic Conditioning, this class features the "best of" cardio-focused high-intensity interval training + total body, bodyweight-focused strength training. Expect the calorie burn + cardiovascular benefits of HIIT, with the lean-muscle + metabolism boosting benefits of strength training. No equipment required, but weights and/or band options will be provided for Strength-focused movements.
STRENGTH: This class is so important + effective, I now offer it twice per week! Literally everyone can benefit from strength training, using both your own body weight + external resistance (in this case, dumbbells). Options provided for all levels + various equipment; expect lots of squatting, hinging, lunging, pushing + pulling - aka all of the most functional, efficient movements. (Note that Tuesday + Saturday classes will be different + complement one another.)
HIIT: All you need is a pair of sneakers + a willingness to work hard! But don't worry - one of the best parts of HIIT training is that for as hard as you work, you should be resting. (Think: all out sprint, then recover.) While plyometric movements (like jump squats) are programmed, they are not mandatory; you will definitely get your heart rate up and sweat regardless!
Note that while each class stands on its own, I PROGRAM the 4 weeks of classes just like I would for a personal training client: meaning each session has a FOCUS or GOAL, each session has MODIFICATIONS + OPTIONS, each session BUILDS upon the previous SKILLS, and all session COMPLEMENT + BALANCE one another.
All classes are:
35 minutes + cool down/stretch
Appropriate for most levels of experience*
Progressively programmed - so that everyone has an option or modification
Capped at 15 people so that everyone can receive 1:1 attention (but only I will see your screen!)
